German Chocolate Brownies

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Chef Dragon Neraye

I made this recipe on accident when making German Chocolate bars. The original recipe calls for German Chocolate Cake mix, but I had forgotten when I got to the store and grabbed brownie mix instead. Here is my take on it.

YUMMY! I like that the coconut frosting is inside the brownie so the flavor is all there but not messy at all. I used Recipe #140466 to make this recipe. Everyone enjoyed. ~Sue
